If you’d like to take an epic road trip this year, one of the best scenic drives in the U.S. is right here in the state. The Beartooth Scenic Highway in Wyoming is a gorgeous stretch of road that starts and ends in Montana with the longest, most stunning section running through the northern part of the Cowboy State. At 68 miles total, it wouldn’t take days to drive from one end to the other, but there’s so much spectacular scenery you’ll want to take it slow, stopping now and then to make it last.

For some fantastic footage of the highway, check out the video below by Hoosier Tim’s Travel Videos:
